Saturday      10:00am -2:00pm

Tuesday       3:30pm – 6:30pm

Wednesday   3:30pm – 6:30pm

At the end of your event, borrowed clothing will be put in plastic bags with your yellow form, and returned to your teacher.

Teachers will return all the clothing to the OAHS museum.

We welcome volunteers to help the OAHS with fitting costumes, checking out, and assisting with laundry when the clothes are returned.

*If a holiday falls on the Saturday, fittings might be a week earlier.
